Hallandale Beach Blog - A common sense public policy overview offering a critical perspective on the current events, politics, govt., public policy, sports scene and pop culture of the U.S., South Florida and Europe, especially the UK and Sweden.
In particular, Broward & Miami-Dade County, and the cities of Hallandale Beach, Hollywood & Aventura. Trust me when I tell you, this part of Florida is NOT the Land of Lincoln. Photo in upper-left is Hallandale Beach's iconic beachball-colored Water Tower on State Road A1A, September 2008; March 2018 photo below of North Beach, looking left-to-right, looking north, HYDE Condominium, Etaru Japanese Robatayaki restaurant, and Hollywood Beach in the distance, with umbrellas.

Broward Judge Patti Englander Henning strikes YET again! Same judge who foolishly took Hallandale Beach Mayor Joy Cooper's side in her/city's lawsuit against Michael Butler over his Public Records requests; the Oral Brown case

Broward Circuit Couty Judge Patti Englander Henning strikes YET again! Same judge who took Hallandale Beach Mayor Joy Cooper's side in her/city's lawsuit against Michael Butler over Public Records requests
In case you forgot, Greater Ft. Lauderdale Convention & Vistors Bureau Director Nicki Grossman's sister, Patti Englander Henning, is the Broward judge who ruled that HB Mayor Joy Cooper's use of private email to conduct city business was a-okay, contrary to both common sense and Florida's Constitution.
She's nothing if not consistent in her approach to justice, as this new story makes quite clear.

Earlier Tuesday night, in an email about this very matter, I wrote that the judge would be on the ballot for retention in November, but I later came to find out that she is on the bench until 2015.
Damn the luck!

Please read this first before reading the South Florida Times story from last week, which I only came across Tuesday night:

FORT LAUDERDALE — A lawsuit over the death of a Lauderhill motorist more than 10 years ago at the hands of Broward Sheriff’s deputies and paramedics remains active in the courts and the actions of a judge in the case are being called into question.
Read the rest of the article at: 

For those of you who are somewhat new to the blog and who never read this excellent Bob Norman piece in the NewTimes when it first came out in 2007, or when I have linked to it here, I suggest you take a hard look and get some more insight into Mayor Cooper's volatile temperament, constant desire to get her way and willingness to use the city's resources to get what she wants for her part of the city, as opposed to what's best for the whole community, and to get a sense of the judge's apparent tendency to ignore the state's laws in order to rule how she wants -they're like twins!- read this:

Thumbs up! What a night! #HOLLYWOODFL based photographer and entrepreneur Esther Chuang with a very elated Hollywood Mayor-elect Josh Levy at his Victory Party, held at Leo Anato's Atelier3/AT3 on Harrison Street & S. 19th Avenue, Hollywood. AT3's great environment and the amazing variety of food prepared by chef Kevin Dreifuss, former owner/chef of now-closed ENDS MEAT restaurant, was SUPERB! November 8, 2016 Esther Chuang, Morro Dois Irmãos, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 2015
Above, perhaps my most-favorite photo ever of Esther, which is really saying something considering the THOUSANDS that I've actually seen of her, from all over the world. But despite the fact that you can't actually see it here, trust me, her amazing smile and inner and external beauty are there. This photo is an even more amazing achievement when you know the backstory of what it took for Esther to get to the top of the mountain, since it's NOT for the faint of heart. Next time you see her, ask her about that! Morro Dois Irmãos, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on her birthday, July 10, 2015. That's the Christ The Redeemer statue atop Mount Corcovado way out in the horizon on the top of another mountain, to the left of her head. To the right is the world famous beach of Ipanema and to the left is the equally famous beach of Copacabana. In case you forgot what the Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio looks like, up close, plus the Amazon area of Brazil that Esther grew up near in Manaus, here's another Brazilian beauty to connect-the-dots for you: Gisele Bündchen, aka @Gisele.

Abençoado por Deus e bonito por natureza!✨ ������

A floresta Amazônica tem um papel fundamental no equilíbrio do clima na Terra e, portanto, na vida de cada um de nós. Nos últimos anos a proteção diminuiu e o desmatamento aumentou drasticamente. E o que já era ruim, pode ficar ainda pior. Se as medidas que o governo vem tomando não forem vetadas, nosso futuro estará ameaçado. Diga NÃO à diminuição da proteção da Floresta do Jamanxim! Diga NÃO à exploração de minério no coração da floresta! #TodosPelaAmazônia #342Amazonia #TodosPelaAmazonia Assine a petição: link na bio. ������✨���� The Amazon Rainforest plays a key role in balancing the climate on the Earth and therefore in each of our lives. In recent years, protection has decreased and deforestation has increased sharply. And what was already bad can get even worse. If the measures that the government has been taking are not vetoed, our future will be threatened. Say NO to the reduction of the Jamanxim Forest´s protection! Say NO to ore mining in the heart of the Forest! #togetherfortheAmazon
